I was reading folowing lines. And I did not understand clearly.

Spring’s Hibernate ORM framework also comes with the convenience class HibernateDaoSupport
that your DAO classes can subclass:
public class StudentDaoHibernate extends HibernateDaoSupport
implements StudentDao {

If you opt for this design, you need to wire in a SessionFactory—the Hibernate-
DaoSupport class comes with this property. This class provides you with a convenience
method, getHibernateTemplate(), to easily get an instance of a HibernateTemplate.
It also has a getSession() and a closeSessionIfNecessary() method if, for some
reason, you need to perform a Hibernate operation without using a Hibernate-
Template. We are sure you will find these cases will be the exception (no pun
intended). So now you can see how easily you can integrate an ORM tool like

Any ideas, resources,sample code,links, highly appreciated. thanks in advance.

The HibernateDaoSupport provides  utility methods for make hibernate calls making it a lot simpler for you. To do this it requires a SessionFactory to access the dabaase, so you need to supply this to your dao when you initialise it
